EJ: You have my attention.
Will: You know what I'm talking about.
EJ: I can assure you I do not.
Will: Okay. Yeah, you're right, because scum like you must have hundreds of secrets. Well, um... I'm going to be a little more specific with you. I'm talking about what you did with my mother.
EJ: Maybe, uh... we should go into the living room and talk about this in private.
Will: Privacy? Yeah, good idea. Because I'm sure that, uh, you're not going to want anyone else to hear what I'm about to say.
Jack: Uh, okay, Miss Winslow. We can talk about this when the semester begins, right? Y--yes, uh, yes, okay? Thank you, thank you. What the hell?
Jennifer: I wish you would have told me about this sooner. I hate that you're dealing with this all on your own.
Daniel: I don't know, I'm not on my own. I'm not. No, I g--I got, uh, Maggie and Melanie, they're there--
Jennifer: Oh, yeah, and you're going to keep this from them too. I know you.
Jennifer: I know we're not seeing each other anymore, but I care about you. I care about you a lot, and you will never be a burden to me.
Bo: I was thinking about our session with Marlena and, um... you know what, we can do this another time.
Hope: No, no, no, no--
Bo: You're exhausted and we--
Hope: No, Bo, please. Say what you wanted to say. We can't keep putting this off. It's why we're going to therapy in the first place.
Bo: Yeah, well... [Chuckles] It's a lot more difficult than I thought it would be, and believe me I didn't think it was going to be a walk in the park.
Hope: I know.
Bo: And the things that came up, I... most of that stuff I thought we had worked through more or less. But obviously we haven't.
Hope: I agree.
Bo: What if even with Marlena's help things don't get better? I mean, what if we can't get past what happened?
Will: Okay, if you don't want everyone in Salem, including your wife, to know what you did, you will give me what I want.
EJ: Enlighten me.
Will: Fine, I'll tell you and then... your whole smug demeanor will be gone. Uh, do you remember when Johnny was missing? Yeah, uh, so do I. When that happened, I saw you and my mom in this room.
EJ: What's so scandalous about that?
Will: You were having sex. While the whole city was out searching for your son, you were cheating on your wife, here, with my mom.
Will: Don't deny this. I saw you with my own two eyes so... you will help me leave Salem, or I promise you, I will tell everyone what you did.
EJ: So let me see if I have this straight--I fund your little, uh, adventure... and in return you keep your mouth shut. Is that what you're suggesting?
Will: You must be slow. Yes. Money for silence. I would have thought a guy like you would be, uh, familiar with that kind of arrangement.
EJ: I must say, I'm quite impressed. You've grown a spine in the last few years.
Will: You don't want to listen to me, okay. Fine, I don't care. I will get out of this town eventually. But you, I will ruin your life. Your wife will leave you. You'll lose your election for mayor. And, uh, when I tell Rafe that you had sex with his wife... you're as good as dead.
Hope: I worry that I'll never be able to get past some of those decisions we made. Brady, I have to believe in my heart that eventually we will. And we'll be stronger for it.
Bo: Yeah, people say the--the only way to move forward is through therapy, but... Hope, we are stronger now than we ever were. Right?
Hope: Yeah, but, uh, Brady, I-I-I'm sorry, what are you trying to say?
Bo: What if going through this just tears us apart again?
Hope: [Sighs] I've thought about that too. But if we don't talk about it, we're never going to heal. Not really.
Bo: Fancy Face, I don't want to lose you because of choices I made a long time ago.
Hope: And I don't want to lose you because we're too scared to talk about those choices. If we want our marriage to thrive then we've got to be committed to this. We have to. We don't have any other choice.
Daniel: Uh, listen, Jen, um... look, thank you for saying that, really, but I can, uh, I'm a big boy. I can take care of this myself. I got it.
Jennifer: Daniel, you had a stroke.
Jennifer: You--you may never be able to operate again. If that is not a reason to lean on a friend, I don't know what is.
Daniel: Okay, honestly, I'm going to be okay. I really am. I've just got to figure out what I'm going to do with the rest of my life, that's all.
Jennifer: Oh, really? That's all?
Jennifer: Look at me. Look at me. Daniel... you lost a career that you love. It's okay to feel something. Okay, talk to me, please.
Daniel: You're an amazing person, you know that?
Jennifer: I'm not an amazing person, but--
Daniel: You are.
Jennifer: I'm a good friend. And you are a really good friend--
Daniel: And you're cute, and, you know, when you get a surprise your eyes go really wide like that and--
Jennifer: Remember when I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life, and you gave me the confidence to pick a path? And I did it. And I am so happy working for Abe right now and doing PR, right?
Daniel: Well, yeah, see I told you, I told you you'd be fantastic, who said that?
Jennifer: You did tell me, but you know what? I want the same for you. You can do it, you can do anything you want. Listen, I want to help you, please. Let me help you the way you helped me.
Daniel: You sure that's a good idea?
Jennifer: I do.
Jennifer: Are you kidding me?
Hope: I need to know that we're strong. That we're... that we are going to get through it this time. The thought of losing you again--
Bo: Hope, listen to me, I'm 100% committed to making our marriage as strong as it possibly can. But... some of those things we talked about in the session, it's-- seeing how much it hurt you, it--it's killing me.
Hope: But it's what I need. It's what we need. No matter how much it hurts and I...
Hope: We can't just talk about our issues in therapy. We need to be able to take them home. Actually there's something that...
Bo: Something that what?
Hope: There's something that I have been thinking about since we left Marlena's office, something that I really need to talk to you about and, I'm afraid... of what will happen when I do.
Will: EJ, we both know I'm holding all the cards here. So, uh, why don't you give me whatever I want, and I will leave you alone?
EJ: I have a question for you. What does your mother say about this, um, encounter you claim you witnessed.
Will: I haven't told her yet. Because I can't stand being in the same room as her. Let alone have a conversation with her.
EJ: So I'm assuming she's one of the reasons that you're leaving town?
Will: She is a reason. Uh, but that doesn't matter. What matters is whether or not we have a deal.
EJ: You know, I really have to commend you. A blackmail achievement at your age, that's really, uh... quite impressive. Though I suppose to a certain degree it must come naturally.
EJ: However, William, despite what you may think, you're not the one holding all the cards, dear boy.
EJ: Really. You see... [Clears throat] You'd do well to remember... that I know something about you. Something that you would not want to be made public.
Jennifer: Jack. I cannot believe this. What are you doing here?
Jack: Look, I'm just reading the newspaper and--
Jennifer: Jack. Please.
Jack: I was walking through, minding my own business, and my natural curiosity took over when I saw the two of you holding hands.
Daniel: Oh, hey, no worries. The hand-holding was completely innocent.
Jack: I know that. Now. Look, uh... Daniel, I couldn't help but overhear what you're going through, and I can't tell you how sorry I am.
Daniel: Oh, don't worry about it at all. I mean, we all got problems, right?
Jack: No, no, don't do that. Please, don't. You don't have to downplay it. Trust me, I know what it's like when life, like, throws you a curveball and you stroke-- you know what I mean.
Daniel: Okay, Jack, if you're talking about your time in Afghanistan, there is absolutely no comParison. You were held by terrorists. I've got tremors.
Jack: No, really, un--underneath... it's not so different. Look, we've both gone through something that has really changed our lives, and we've had to reevaluate and find a new... a new status quo, so to speak.
Daniel: I suppose that's true.
Jack: Look, when I got back from this...confinement, and got back to the real world, I had to make some changes. I had to do something. I had to figure it out and I did, and you will too. Trust me. You're going to look back on this and you're going to see this...this setback as a little part, like a--a dot, in the bigger picture--in your bigger picture. And you're going to, you're going to connect all those dots, and you'll see that it led you to...to something that you never even imagined.
Hope: Losing Zack was the most... devastating thing I've ever been through.
Bo: I know.
Hope: Obviously, as we both know, most of our problems stem from losing Zack. And the choices that were made.
Bo: Yeah, Hope, and I am sorry. I'm sorry I let Chelsea drive that night. I'm sorry I kept... what happened from you. I-- and if I could take that back, I would, you know I would.
Hope: I do, I do know that. You didn't trust me with the truth that night. Just like you didn't trust me when Ciara was kidnapped or when Carly came back into town. [Sighs] You know, so many times, we have ended up in the same place. A really...dishonest place.
Bo: But we're working on that, right? We can get through that. I pr--I promised you I won't lie to you ever again, that's...
Hope: I want to believe that. I want to believe it. But there's always this--this small seed of doubt in the back of my mind, reminding me of the past. How are we supposed to have a healthy relationship if I'm afraid to--to trust you with my whole heart?
Daniel: Well, I--I guess it's like they say. Everything happens for a reason, right?
Jack: I--that's what I have to believe, otherwise, I mean... what's the point? What's it all about? But you don't have to believe me, my life's a mess.
Jennifer: You're doing all right, Jack.
Jack: Oh, come on, now. I've hit a lot of road bumps in my life, and, uh, you've helped me over them. Jennifer, you helped me more than you know. So listen, Daniel. If the lady wants to help you, please, take my advice. Let her. It's a decision you'll never regret.
Jennifer: You are being incredibly, surprisingly reasonable about all this.
Jack: You're right, I am. I know. I don't understand it myself. But after watching the two of you and seeing the concern you have for each other, I, uh, I've realized that the three of us... well, we can't go on this way.
EJ: You know, I have to admit something to you. I've always seen a little bit of myself in--in you. [Clears throat] You know, a troubled young man, very angry at the world.
Will: Let me be clear. I am nothing like you.
EJ: Well, we both had a very um, difficult upbringing. You know? A lot of mistakes were made.
Will: Yeah. EJ, everybody makes mistakes.
EJ: Everybody does make mistakes, very true, very true. Not everybody, however, gets caught. And you got caught.
Will: What the hell are you talking about?
EJ: I don't know. What could I know... that will get you in terrible, terrible trouble? I'll give you a hint. It is something that could send you to prison for the rest of your life.
Bo: Fancy Face, you're breaking my heart.
Hope: I'm sorry.
Hope: No, I--I don't want to hurt you, I just... I'm just trying to be honest and share my feelings with you.
Bo: You're right, I have betrayed your trust. And there's really nothing I can do to change--change that. But I can prove to you that what happened was in the past. And I can be honest with you until the day I die.
Hope: I know you mean that. But you've said that before.
Bo: Hold on, I'm not finished. You know how stubborn and set in my ways I can be, it... it's part of me, and... I knew the day I met you that I wanted to change. And you helped me with that, Fancy Face. But the thing is, deep inside... that kid, that scared, um... and has trouble relying on people, is still there.
Hope: But you can rely on me.
Bo: Yeah, I know, Fancy Face. I can. Because you're my life partner. And I promise you I will do everything I can to get rid of that part of me that doesn't trust... and have faith in you. And faith in us. Okay?
Jennifer: "Go on like this." What does that mean, Jack?
Jack: It means... fighting over which one of us is right for you. I can see now how much this hurts all of us. I mean, I don't even know which one of us should win anymore.
Daniel: No, no, there's no winning. I stepped out. I'm done.
Jack: Except, uh, Jennifer still loves you. So, Daniel. Jennifer wants to be your friend. You need a friend. You want her to be your friend, so get over your stubbornness and let her.
Jennifer: Excuse me, I--I want to say something. I agree with Jack.
Jennifer: But, Jack, this is between me and Daniel.
Jack: Yes, of course. Exactly. Uh, so, uh... Hawaii trips. Date nights. [Chuckles] How could we even think that we could pretend this was real?
Jennifer: I don't know.
Daniel: I don't know.
Jack: Daniel, you might think you took yourself out of the equation, but as long as Jennifer has feelings for you, that's impossible.
Daniel: And I'll bet you have a suggestion.
Jack: I do. I do, I think we should all just step back and reevaluate the whole situation. I think maybe we should just... put an end to it.
Hope: I have faith in us. Or I wouldn't be here. And God knows, believe me, I know I am not perfect. I've got plenty to work on myself.
Bo: Sure do.
Bo: I'm just kidding. You are perfect.
Hope: That's better.
Bo: We can make it through this. Fancy Face, we can make it through anything. As long as we're together.
EJ: You know, I can see the headline now. Horton scandal. Your whole family would melt, wouldn't they? I mean, can you imagine, you, the precious one, the anointed one, in jail, eh? Your mother would be such a mess. Although maybe that would be of benefit, eh? A fitting punishment.
Will: I have no idea what you are talking about.
EJ: Really? I'd be lying if I didn't say that hurts my feelings a little bit, William. You don't remember it? It was one of the most important moments of my life.
Will: You got nothing. Okay? You got nothing. I know you're bluffing. And it's too bad because, um, it didn't work. Nice to know you, chap.
EJ: Am I bluffing, William, when I say that I know that it was not your father who shot me? You already know that, though, don't you? Because it was you. You tried to kill me.
Jennifer: Jack, what are you saying?
Jack: Daniel took himself out of the equation, now I'm doing the same.
Daniel: Jack? Jack, you don't want to do that.
Jack: Look, this may be the biggest mistake of my life. But it's--it's the best thing for all of us. It--it's... especially for Jennifer.
Daniel: Is it?
Jack: I'm taking the pressure off. You no longer have to choose, Jennifer. Just let life happen. Let the chips fall where they may.
Daniel: I understand where you're coming from. It's the very reason I backed out. Wasn't easy. But I did it. I love you... very much. But sometimes you realize you've just got to walk away.
Jennifer: And you...are two very amazing men. And I would never do anything to hurt either one of you.
Daniel: Hey, no, no, no, no. You didn't hurt me at all. You made my life better. You showed me that I could. That I could love again. You showed me what love could be.
Jack: Don't you see, Jennifer? See how amazing you are? You got two amazing men fighting over you.
Jennifer: Yeah. And now I've lost you both.
EJ: You thought you could get away with murder, didn't you? Or at least attempted murder.
Will: You don't know what you're talking about. My dad shot you. Not me. You know, after years of denying that to yourself, maybe you really can't remember. But I can assure you one thing, I remember that day very clearly.
Will: You're delusional.
EJ: Delusional. You know, for a very long time, I really couldn't understand quite why your father did that. You know? And then I had children of my own. And I understood exactly what it was to want to protect your children. Whatever the cost.
Will: If it was me, and I'm not saying that it was, but if it was me, why would you keep it to yourself all this time? Why-w--why would you not send me to prison when you had the chance?
EJ: I'm glad you asked. You see, I have something that you lack. It's a little something called patience. Now, when I get some information I weigh it. I weigh it, I look for the right opportunity, and I bide my time. You should take something from that.
Will: A lesson on how to be a manipulative bastard like you.
EJ: Let met tell you something. The next time you try and pull something like this... especially to a DiMera... you better make sure they don't have any secrets on you.
Will: You made your point.
EJ: Unfortunately for you, William, I have only just begun.
Hope: When you suggested we go out for date night, I didn't think it would include breaking and entering.
Bo: Not to worry. I have an in with the owner.
Hope: Hurry, it's cold.
Bo: I love you, Ma.
Singer: The way the light...
Bo: May I have this dance?
Hope: Thought you'd never ask.
Singer: Loving you has saved my life it's so crystal clear I found my home right here
Jack: Hey, hey, you couldn't lose me if you tried. And I know you tried. I just think it's better if we just take a break from all this until we--till we get our heads on straight.
Daniel: We can still be friends.
Jennifer: Well, I'm grateful for that. I am.
Daniel: Me too.
Jennifer: But why--why does this sound like we're saying goodbye? Why does it sound so final?
Jack: Final? Nothing's final, right? [Chuckles] I mean... look, I can't speak for Daniel, but I'm always going to love you. Y--you're my wife. The mother of my children. We'll always be connected, but...
Jack: But there's always going to be a part of me that wonders if there's a part of you that is still in love with him.
Daniel: And if you ended up with me, I knew I'd always wonder if you had second thoughts. Thinking maybe you picked the wrong guy.
Jennifer: This is so crazy. So it all comes back around to me and my indecision.
Jack: Which makes it all the more important for you to wait, take some time... so you can figure out what you want to do and see what you truly want.
EJ: I'm sure the toll of killing an innocent man has taken quite a toll on your psyche.
Will: An innocent man?
EJ: Maybe not.
Will: Yeah, you know my only regret was that I didn't get the job done the first time.
EJ: Is that a threat?
Will: Let's just say I learned a very valuable lesson. Um, uh, this time, I--I'll just I'll aim... just a little bit higher.
EJ: I really don't think that you're in the position to be making such bold statements.
Will: Okay, you know what? [Chuckles] Go ahead. Call the cops. Actually, here. I don't care.
EJ: Yes, you do. You care a lot, William. Your life at the moment is very challenging. I really don't think that you need me to take you to court. To bring all of that emotional turmoil into your life. You're very confused at the moment. Very, uh, mixed up. Emotionally, I mean.
Will: Excuse me?
EJ: Let me ask you something. Have you spoken to your grandmother? [Sighs] It would be a really good thing if you shared your deepest, darkest secrets with the world. Because, you know, that's something that can be arranged very easily.
Will: You wouldn't do that.
EJ: I would. I would. I will.
Will: You sick son of a bitch.
EJ: Okay, okay, the name calling I think we have to stop. But this tells me that we are where we need to be, William. I've listened to what you have to say, you've listened to what I have to say. I think that we have a new appreciation and understanding of each other's positions. Don't you?
Jennifer: I mean, we should have seen this coming. What were we thinking, really?
Jack: I'll tell you what I was thinking. I was thinking I'd just swoop in and show another ill-suited suitor the door. Much to my chagrin, he turns out to be a real stand-up guy.
Daniel: Well, I'd be lying if, uh, I didn't say the same about you.
Jennifer: And really, who w--who would have thought... it would really be this hard to figure out, and I'm still as confused as I was to begin with.
Jack: Which is all the more reason to make this decision now. You need time. You need space. You don't need the two of us. Jennifer, as much as I hate doing this, backing off, I'm going to do it. It's for the best.
Jennifer: I know you're right. It's just, what do we do now? Where do we go?
Hope: I know therapy hasn't been a whole lot of fun, to say the least. But I really do believe in my heart that it's important for us. I mean, our marriage isn't just better than it has been in a while. It's great. I want to keep it that way.
Bo: So do I. So therapy, dance lessons, I'll do whatever it takes as long as I'm with you.
Hope: Just remember that when therapy gets hard, okay? And remember that no matter what, Brady... I always love you. Always.
Bo: And I love you.
Singer: I'm right here
Will: Nobody's going to believe your word over mine. You're scum.
EJ: Hmm, you know, I wouldn't know this from personal experience, William, but I hear that prison is not a very nice place. Especially for a man of your particular disposition. You sure you want to play this game? Hmm?
Will: Oh-- okay. Okay, I won't tell anyone you had sex with my mother.
Will: Yeah, you got my word.
EJ: Good. Unfortunately for you, though, William, I'm not a very forgiving man.
Will: Oh, okay, what do you want me to say? I'm sorry? I just told you that I'm going to keep your secret.
EJ: Unfortunately, William, an apology is not nearly enough. You need to be taught a lesson for what you just did. And I know just the thing.
Jack: I guess we need to just move on with our lives and... get back to normal.
Jennifer: Mmm. I don't even know what normal is anymore, Jack.
Jack: I want my family back. I can't not say that. But seeing how conflicted you are about your feelings for both of us makes me realize that just pressuring you like this isn't going to solve anything.
Daniel: Okay, all right, you know what, maybe--maybe--maybe we just, um, let life unfold as it should, rather than force something here. And the puzzle pieces, I'm sure, they'll just, I don't know, they'll click, okay?
Jennifer: I hope you're right.
Daniel: Yeah, well, me too. Anyway, I've got to get to the hos--to the hospital. Home...uh...
Jennifer: Um, if you need anything--
Daniel: Yeah, I know, I know. Uh, thank you. Thank you.
Jennifer: It's--it's getting late, I should get going home.
Jack: Yes. Yes, you should go home. Um... goodnight, Jennifer.
Jennifer: Goodnight, Jack.
Hope: Have you ever felt like you're in the exact place you're meant to be? Like it's destiny? Hmm? Because I feel like that right now. Hmm. Not saying anything? Silly?
Bo: I hope not. Because I feel that way whenever I'm with you.
Hope: You always know the right thing to say.
Bo: No, no, I mean it. I'm here. You've made it through so much. Shipwrecks, Stefano DiMera, Shawn D's teenage years. [Both chuckle] Fancy Face... you are my destiny. You're my everything.
Will: What do you want me to do?
EJ: I'm sure you're familiar with the phrase, "You keep your friends close and your enemies closer."
Will: Yeah. So?
EJ: So you're going to be close to me, William.
Will: What does that mean?
EJ: You're going to assist me.
Will: You know, you have, like, tons of minions to order around. So what do you need me for?
EJ: Because you're an upstanding young man. You're so innocent, William. Nobody's going to suspect you. And if you want to stay a free man... if you want to keep yourself out of jail, you're going to do everything I ask you to do. Welcome to your worst nightmare, William. I own you.
On the next "Days of Our Lives" --
Sonny: Yes or no. Did you cheat on my cousin with Melanie?
Melanie: I'm not a selfish bitch, Abigail.
Abigail: Then you're a lying slut.
Brady: Titan's yours, Granddad. It's all yours again.
